Traditional Middle Eastern food can be vegan friendly and hummus is a vegan’s best friend. Tel Aviv is full of hummus places, though most of them serve meat and other animal products. Aba Gil Hummus is unique in being a completely vegan hummus restaurant. Most ingredients used are organic, which also sets this place apart from the other restaurants. In addition to the traditional hummus, tehini and falafel, you can have rice, quinoa, soup and quiche - all vegan.
There’s a nice selection of vegan desserts, including a vegan version of local delicacy malabi, a creamy pudding dessert, which is normally made with milk, but at Aba Gil is based in non dairy rice milk.
The staff is very friendly and although prices for some of the dishes are slightly above the normal hummus prices (because organic food is generally still quite expensive in Israel), overall you’ll pay a reasonable price for a fulfilling meal.
